VIDEO: See Blue's Story. A dog can suffocate in minutes and it can happen to the most loving, careful pet owner.
Pet suffocation in snack, cereal and other bags and containers happens often - and it happens quickly, too. And it happens to both cats and dogs. Many people have returned home, or walked into another room, to find a bag covering their beloved dog's head. Sadly, many of these dogs are already dead by the time they are found.
While some fortunate dogs are saved by timely and appropriate CPR, their numbers pale in comparison to those who don't survive sticking their head into a bag.
Please explore and share the resources on this page – together we can (and should) prevent pet suffocation!
